It seems as though not even blood thirst and satanic rituals can keep a couple together these days. Vampiric duo of the decade Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly (MGK) have allegedly called it quits after almost three years together. How do we know this? Because of social media… duh.
On 12 February 2023, Fox shared two images on her Instagram, one of a mirror selfie and the next of a burning pot of letters. The caption read: “You can taste the dishonesty. It’s all over your breath.” Now, for those of us well versed in the art of breakup lyrics, we instantly recognised these words from Beyoncé’s 2016 song ‘Pray You Catch Me’, a track which originated off of the artist’s album Lemonade—dedicated to unravelling the infidelity of Bey’s husband Jay Z.
This isn’t the first time fans have speculated about the couple and whether or not they’ve split. However, this is the first time Fox herself has made a significant social media statement regarding her fiancé (or should we say, ex-fiancé?).
Following the initial post, the actress promptly deleted her page and went radio silence online. Netizens, however, were naturally unsatisfied and took it upon themselves to delve deeper into the Fox/MGK relationship vortex, finding screenshots online of the actress’ social media activity just before she shut down her account.
Their first clue came in the form of Fox’s following tab which had been blitzed by the actress, leaving only three celebrities: Harry Styles, Timothée Chalamet, and Eminem. Everyone who follows the rap scene even semi-closely will know that MGK and the ‘Rap God’ have had a fraught past and so Fox’s IG follow seemed highly suspicious.
Another pretty massive tip-off has been the fact that the Jennifer’s Body star, again prior to her closing her account, had deleted all of her pictures with MGK—a classic signal of splitsville that all of us gen Zers can relate to. Some fans, who were clearly very against the ‘Bloody Valentine’ rapper, shared their excitement on Twitter.
Prior to the online hints, a number of individuals were quite disturbed at the sight of Fox at the 2023 Grammy awards. The actress had a broken wrist and had also confirmed on Instagram that she was suffering from a concussion. While the injuries have in no way been linked to MGK, or indeed a domestic dispute, the sights did worry fans of the actress online.
A cohort of lip readers also spent time on TikTok deciphering what appeared to be a pretty intense argument between the pair during the awards ceremony.
Neither of the pair have made any further public comments regarding their relationship status. But, from what we can see, it’s not looking good for what was once considered Hollywood’s most daring couple.
